Long-distance routes and tour tips
This long-distance tour from Lake Constance to Lake Königssee offers stunning views of the Alps and the Alpine foothills. The route, however, is not without its challenges.
Your tour features Alpine panoramas from start to finish, idyllic lakes, towns and villages, and the fairytale castles of King Ludwig II. But these are rewards that have to be earned – by tackling the many climbs that this route has to offer. From its starting point in Lindau on the shores of Lake Constance, the route makes its way to the Allgäu past crystal-clear lakes and Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein castles. After a long stretch of unspoilt scenery, it ends at Berchtesgaden and Lake Königssee, whose beauty provides ample reward for all the many metres that have been climbed along the way.
Terrain: some paths are on asphalt. There are also sections on crushed brick/stone, gravel or sand. The route is mostly car-free.
Scenery: foothills of the Alps with mountain pastures, lakes and Alpine panoramas. Neuschwanstein Castle and other famous buildings are features of the landscape.
